Shall we call this Meaty Tuesday? Whatever we call it – it’s time to indulge our Hamburger Cravings! I hardly ever eat red meat (as you may have noticed), but sometimes I just HAVE to have a burger. For these amazing Grilled Onions and Mushroom Cheese Burgers, I am using organic ground beef (1 package for 8 small burgers) – and Naan bread in lieu of a boring dry bun. For once, I had some potatoes at home – so I made some fries too. My, not so impartial, husband claimed it was the best burger he has ever had : ) . I thought it was pretty darn good too.
